About
Who am I? Hmm that is a good question. My name is Brenden Boudet. I am currently stationed with the United States Air Force at Nellis AFB, Nevada. I am an electrician on F-16s. I spend most of my time at work [10-12 hours per day] and the rest of my time is spent watching TV shows with my wife [Fay] or playing video games. I am 23 years old, as of Jan. 7th 2011, and have been serving for 3 years in the military. The games I currently play are Counterstrike: Condition Zero, Civilization V, Fallout: New Vegas, and occasionally a random MMO that any number of friends convert me to for a month or so.

I began playing video games at a young age, originally on the Pocket Gameboy then eventually on the N64 and Computer. My favorite video games as a child were the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games and the Legend of Zelda games. I transitioned to Age of Empires 2, Morrowwind and Counterstrike: CZ eventually and now just dabble with other games while sticking to my traditional guns. I love RPGs, FPSs, and Strategy games. I have not been too involved in many Indie games, but I when I find a good one, I will spend a good bit of time on it till the next new gem pops up.

The games I am most looking forward to are Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Brink, SWTOR, and Batman: Arkham City. I love watching the DToid Show, and have read many of the reviews and personally picked games based off of what DToid bloggers and community members recommend. So thanks DToid Community!

Hey CaptainOrion, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
